A Locally-owned Funeral Home: It’s About Trust

When searching for a funeral home in Lincoln, Nebraska, one of the most important things to consider is whether the organization is trustworthy.

When searching for a funeral home in Lincoln, Nebraska, one of the most important things to consider is whether the organization is trustworthy. Can you trust them with the services that will honor your loved one? Will they listen to what you want, not what they think you need? Will they support your family through every step of the process, especially during the difficult decision making? These are all very real questions that families consider when choosing a funeral home.

At Roper & Sons Funeral Home in Lincoln, Nebraska, we’ve been honoring the loved ones of families since 1901. People think of us when they must plan a funeral. There is a reason for that. Our locally-owned, family-trusted legacy stems from multiple generations of leadership that has earned a reputation of trust with families because we are committed to doing what is right and what is in the best interest of the people we serve.

As a locally-owned funeral home that includes four generations of one family, every family that walks through our doors instantly becomes family to us. You can trust us with the care of your loved one because we treat your mother, father, grandparent, sibling, or child as if they are one of our own. Chances are we know you personally – our kids go to the same schools, we attend the same churches, we are involved in community activities with you – that is what makes us different.

Customized Funeral Services

Roper & Sons offers families many options to consider when planning a funeral service. We understand how important family traditions are and want to make your funeral service as unique as the life your loved one lived. Whether you’re planning a traditional funeral service, a memorial service, or cremation, we are here to help customize the service to meet your needs. Our team of professionals provides you and your family with guidance and support through this difficult time.

Specialized Services

Roper & Sons has always been a leader in the community when it comes to offering new and innovative services.

We believe that meeting the needs of the family includes family and friends who live in the immediate area, as well as those who live out of town and aren’t able to attend your funeral. In those situations, they are able to live stream funerals conveniently from anywhere in the world.

Grief support counseling is free to anyone in the Lincoln community, regardless of where the service took place. Our mission is to care for a family before, during, and long after the funeral service is done as family members may continue to cope with the loss of their loved one for weeks, months, or longer.

Preplanning a funeral in advance is beneficial to you and your family. Our family counseling professionals provide an opportunity to make all of the arrangements to your preferences, relieving family members from the emotional burden later.
